Version 6.1
Release Cumulative Fix Pack 6.1 SP2-CFP11
Prerequisite AEM 6.1 Service Pack 2
General availability August 11, 2017

Cumulative Fix Pack

Starting with AEM 6.1 Service Pack 2, Adobe has introduced a single delivery model for releasing fixes. Instead of releasing hot fixes for single issues, Adobe will release a Cumulative Fix Pack (CFP) every month (subject to passing quality checks), which is an aggregator content package for multiple fixes. CFPs primarily include bug fixes but might also include Feature Packs. They have the following advantages over single hotfix releases:

  • Cumulative in nature (for example, CFP3 contains fixes for CFP2 and CFP1)
  • Increased quality assurance
  • Simplified installation (User installs a CFP as a single package that has no dependencies, except for the latest service pack)

For more information on CFP and other types of releases, see Maintenance Release Vehicle.

About the release

AEM Cumulative Fix Pack 6.1 SP2-CFP11 is an important update that includes key customer fixes released since the general availability of AEM 6.1 SP2 in August 2016. It includes version 1.2.18 of the built-in repository (Apache Jackrabbit Oak).

AEM 6.1 SP2-CFP11 is dependent on AEM 6.1 Service Pack 2. Therefore, you must install the AEM 6.1 SP2-CFP11 package after installing AEM 6.1 SP2. For installation instructions, see AEM 6.1 SP2 release notes.

Here are the key highlights of AEM 6.1 SP2-CFP11:

  • Efficient management of hidden components in layout mode in tablet.
  • Introducing Quickactions on Hybrid Devices.
  • Resolving component level synchronization issues with live copies.


Applying CFP without validating compatibility between installed feature packs may result in system failure or loss of custom configurations, which could require restoration from backup to resolve.


If your instance is running a higher version of Oak compared to the Oak version of the CFP package, the latter will not impact your current Oak version.

There is another issue with upgrades from 6.1 CFPs to AEM 6.2 which is mentioned in the article AEM 6.2 upgrade. Without this fix, the audit of replication events might not work properly.
  • The TaskContext variable is not populated for AEM Forms processes. CQ-4212223
  • After successful installation of 6.1 SP2-CFP10 package, /system/console/productinfo page and /welcome page show previous CFP version details.  For installation verification, compare list of content packages and OSGI bundles provided with 6.1 SP2-CFP10. CQDOC-10890

For a complete list of issues, see Known Issues in AEM 6.1 SP2.

Configuration settings required for NPR-15869


The NPR-15869 is a part of CFP8. The following configuration setting should be done if you are installing Cumulative Fix Pack 8 or any CFP package released post CFP8.

If the user needs to store data for page properties at a greater depth than 1 under /jcr:content, use the following steps to do configuration changes:

  1. Configure the property JSON Max results of Apache Sling Get Servlet using /system/console/configMgr
  2. Set its value to a number >1000 (which is the current default) such that this number is greater than the total number of nodes in the /jcr:content subtree till the configured depth above.

This will enable the sling GET servlet to be able to return all the required nodes.

Configuration settings required for NPR-17041


The NPR-17041 is a part of CFP9. The following configuration setting should be done if you are installing Cumulative Fix Pack 9 or any CFP package released post CFP9.

Use the following steps to create a profile node for the user:

In the Apache Felix Web Management console, add profile/nt:primaryType="nt:unstructured" to the User Property Mapping property of the Apache Jackrabbit Oak Default Sync Handler configuration.

Changes in decoration tag behavior

The behavior of Decoration tags has changed since AEM 6.1 SP2-CFP4. Fore details, see Decoration Tag. In some cases, the changes caused web page elements to be distorted for customers upgrading to AEM 6.1 SP2-CFP4 or a higher CFP version. Such issues were fixed by making custom changes to the way the Decoration element was used by these customers.

Additional instructions for indexing

While using AEM Communities, searching for a community user when there are a large number of community users might take substantial time (NPR-15390: Hotfix for CQ-4199692).

Use the following steps for speeding up the query:

  1. Add the displayName property to the Publish instance(s) so that indexing can be done.
  2. Steps to add this index manually using CRXDE Lite are as follows:
    1. Log in as an admin user in CRXDE Lite.
    2. Copy the node /oak:index/authorizables/indexRules/rep:Authorizable/properties/profileEmail  to a new node in the same 'Properties' folder and name it 'profileDisplayName'.
    3. In the newly created node, 'profileDisplayName', change the property 'name' to 'profile/displayName'.
    4. Re-index by navigating to the node /oak:index/authorizables and changing the property 'reindex' to be 'true'.
    5. Save the change, and the 'reindex' property automatically changes back to 'false' when re-indexing is done.

Note: The preceding steps should only be performed on the Publish instance and not the Author instance.
